A deeper look at WordPress vs. Google Analytics

In my previous blog entry, I discussed the discrepancy between WordPress and Google Analytics view counts. Today, I'd like to look more closely at what the data may be telling us. If I think about modeling the number of WordPress views that show up on a blog entry, I would think […]

WordPress vs. Google Analytics in top 10 posts

In a previous blog post, I looked at how the top 10 JMP blog posts from 2011 held up over time and hinted toward the discrepancy between WordPress counts and Google Analytics. While I didn’t have historic WordPress counts for those blog posts, it's much easier for the posts released in 2014 […]

Coming in JMP 12: Interactive HTML Bubble Plot

JMP 11 provided the ability to create an interactive Flash version of the Bubble Plot platform. Our customers wanted us to provide the same functionality using interactive HTML so they would be able to share their bubble plots with colleagues using iPads.

Many customers want to share JMP reports with colleagues on iPad or Android tablets, but these devices have different requirements than the desktops. In JMP 11, we exported interactive HTML […]

Dual-scaled jobs chart deconstructed, part 1

I saw this "really striking" jobs chart on Twitter recently. Can you see why the data is not as striking as it appears?   It certainly looks striking. The red line (labor force without a bachelor's degree) and the blue line (labor force with a bachelor's degree) were moving in lock step […]

Visualizing pregnancy and post-baby weight loss with Graph Builder

My first favorite visualization from my JMP Discovery Summit poster was a multiple-element Graph Builder creation that tracked my weight trends through pregnancy, post-baby weight loss, and two and half years of weight maintenance. This seems like an especially appropriate time of year to share this graph since  so many New Year's resolutions include weight […]

Coming in JMP 12: Graph Builder improvements

Ease-of-use and convenience functionality have been the focus of graphics work for JMP 12. The most prominent ease-of-use change is the drop zones in Graph Builder, which now light up whenever you're dragging something in. Now everyone can find the "secret" drop zone just inside the axis. It even has a […]
